According to NJ.com, Jersey Flight defensive back John Williams was killed on Saturday night. The newspaper said he veered into an oncoming lane while driving in Pemberton Twp.

Williams, who has just played in the Flight’s home opener on Friday night at the CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, N.J., collided with another vehicle head-on. The 30-year-old, who was residing in Hamilton, N.J. after being born in Ewing, N.J., was pronounced dead at the scene at approx. 11:30 pm on Juliustown Road.

The driver of the second vehicle, who was identified as a 48-year-old Manchester resident, was injured in the accident. They are expected to survive, as the newspaper said they did not receive life-threatening injuries.

The law enforcement authorities told NJ.com that Williams was driving east on Juliustown Road when his car then suddenly moved into the oncoming lane. The authorities also told the paper that he was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

The investigation, according to the paper, is ongoing.

Williams joined the Flight this season. He previously played college football at Tabor College in Kansas.

He played for several indoor football teams before joining the Flight this season. He was even the 2015 AIF Defensive MVP with the ASI Panthers, a team based in Reading, Penn.

As we previously mentioned, the Flight will honor Williams in their next home game on Friday, April 20th with a moment of silence. Jersey hosts the Richmond Roughriders in the game, as there will likely be other tributes to him throughout the rest of the season by the team.
